ABIB: PM Says Hotel Workers Thrift Fund Safe at Bank
----------------------------------------------------
The Daily Observer reports that Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister
is assuring hospitality industry workers who have their thrift
funds saved at the financially challenged Antigua & Barbuda
Investment Bank (ABIB) that their funds are safe.

Word from Prime Minister Gaston Browne came through his Chief of
Staff Lionel Max Hurst who said the PM believes the ABI Bank issue
"will be settled within months," according to The Daily Observer.

Mr. Browne was responding to claims from the Deputy General
Secretary of the Antigua and Barbuda Workers Union (ABWU) Chester
Hughes, who told this newspaper that the nation's political leader
failed to respond to an invitation for a consultation to update
workers on the matter of their money  at the bank, the report
notes.

"We have left several messages to invite him to the meeting to
address and allay some of the concerns of the workers . . . .
unfortunately he has taken a different position on the matter in
our view and has not communicated back to us," the report quoted
Mr. Hughes as saying.

But Mr. Hurst maintained that no such message was left at the
prime minister's office, the report relates.

The chief of staff said ABIB has been making payments to
individuals who are entitled to get payments, the report notes.

However, Mr. Hughes said while individuals have not had difficulty
accessing their retirement funds so far, the issue is still a
cause for concern given the present financial status of the bank,
which is facing up to a EC$400 million in the hole, the report
says.

Based on reports, the fund has close to EC$8 million belonging to
about 1600 hotel and restaurant workers, the report adds.

BANCO HIPOTECARIO: Moody's Rates $250M Series 5 Debt Issuance Caa1
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned foreign currency senior
unsecured debt rating of Caa1 to Banco Hipotecario S.A.'s Series 5
debt issuance for $250 million.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The outlook on the rating is negative, in line with the negative
outlook on Argentina's Caa1 sovereign bond rating, which
constrains the banks' ratings.  The deteriorating operating
environment is negatively affecting the Argentine financial
institutions' business prospects, asset quality and earnings
generation amid a continued economic downturn and high inflation.

The rating was assigned to Banco Hipotecario:

Series 5 debt issuance for $250 million:
   -- Global Foreign Currency Senior Unsecured Debt Rating: Caa1


BANCO HIPOTECARIO: Moody's Assigns Caa1 GL Currency Deposit Rating
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Latin America Agente de Calificacion de Riesgo has
assigned an standalone baseline credit assessment of caa1 to Banco
Hipotecario S.A., a global local currency deposit rating of
Caa1/Not Prime, a foreign currency deposit rating of Caa2/Not
Prime, a national scale local deposit rating of Baa1.ar and a
foreign currency Ba2.ar.  Moody's has also assigned B3(cr)/Not
Prime (cr) long-and short-term global counterparty risk
assessments.  In addition, Moody's has also assigned a national
scale foreign currency debt rating of Baa1.ar to the Series 5 debt
issuance for $250 million.

The outlook on the ratings is negative, in line with the negative
outlook on Argentina's Caa1 sovereign bond rating, which
constrains the banks' ratings.  The deteriorating operating
environment is negatively affecting the Argentine financial
institutions' business prospects, asset quality and earnings
generation amid a continued economic downturn and high inflation.

These ratings were assigned to Banco Hipotecario S.A.:

Baseline Credit Assessment: caa1
Adjusted Baseline Credit Assessment: caa1
Global local currency deposit rating: Caa1/Not Prime
National scale local currency deposit rating: Baa1.ar
Global foreign currency deposit rating: Caa2/Not Prime
National scale foreign currency deposit rating: Ba2.ar
Long- and short-term global counterparty risk assessment:
B3(cr)/Not Prime (cr)
Series 5 debt issuance for $250 million:
National scale foreign currency debt rating: Baa1.ar

RATINGS RATIONALE

The Caa1 long-term rating is based on Hipotecario's caa1
standalone baseline credit assessment (BCA).  The standalone
rating takes into account the bank's lending mix and its adequate
capitalization, in the context of high inflation and weak economic
activity in Argentina.  The rating also captures the bank's high
lending appetite and its large exposure to consumer loans, which
now represents roughly 60% of the total lending portfolio.
Hipotecario provides a range of banking services to households in
the form of personal loans, credit cards and mortgages, and to
corporates.

Over the last three years, the bank has expanded its loan book at
an average annual nominal growth rate of 34%,which is higher than
the system average of 25%.  Hipotecario's asset risk has
deteriorated modestly over this period, with its non-performing
loan ratio reaching 1.9% in 1Q15, up from 1.57% in 2012, mostly
because of relatively rapid nominal loan growth.  High loan growth
has also resulted in reserve coverage declining to a still high
107.3% of its problem loans, from 132% in 2012.  Moody's expects a
rise in delinquencies in the coming quarters as the new consumer
portfolio seasons in a more challenging credit environment,
particularly because growth in riskier asset classes such as
credit cards and personal loans.

Hipotecario's high-yielding loan book generates net interest
margins that have been reasonably steady at 9% over the last three
years.  However, the bank's profitability is weaker than its
system peers', owing to higher funding cost because of a greater
dependence on time deposits.  Its net income is also hurt by weak
operating efficiency, as evidenced in the 78% cost to income
ratio, which is much higher than peers'.  Income from fees is an
important component of Hipotecario's earnings, owing to income
from insurance services and credit card fees.

Capitalization remains adequate to absorb expected losses in an
event of stress and in part reflects regulations preventing banks
from paying large dividends.  The bank's 18.5% ratio of tangible
common equity to risk-weighted assets as of March 2015 allows for
further business expansion.  Hipotecario relies moderately on
market funds, as evidenced in its 16.8% ratio of liquid assets to
tangible banking assets.  A sizable portion of its funding is
sourced from government entities, and despite efforts to diversify
its funding mix, deposit granularity remains modest, as suggested
by its top 10 depositors accounting for 48% of total deposits.

What could move the rating up or down

The ratings have no upward pressure at this time.  The bank could
also face downward rating pressure if its asset quality or
capitalization metrics deteriorate substantially owing to the
current economic slowdown.

Hipotecario is 58.4% owned by Argentina's national government
(Caa1 negative) through Banco de la Nacion Argentina (unrated) and
ANSES (unrated), and 30% owned by Inversiones y Representaciones
S.A. (unrated) (IRSA).  However, IRSA holds 48.4% of the voting
shares and appoints the majority of the board.

Banco Hipotecario's Caa1/Not Prime local currency deposit ratings
are in line with the bank's BCA, in absence of affiliate or
government support.


MENDOZA: S&P Affirms 'CCC-' Currency Ratings; Outlook Remains Neg.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'CCC-' foreign and
local currency ratings on the province of Mendoza.  The outlook
remains negative.

RATIONALE
Mendoza's rating weaknesses include Argentina's "very volatile and
underfunded" intergovernmental institutional framework; the
province's "very weak" budgetary performance and flexibility,
exacerbated by high inflation and with average expected operating
deficits of close to 1% of operating revenues for the next two
years; and limited room to raise revenues or cut expenditures.
The province's creditworthiness also suffers from a "weak"
economy, with a GDP per capita of about $10,700; "weak" financial
management, which S&P expects to continue to hamper the province's
liquidity and budgetary management despite the change in
administration; and "weak" liquidity with no cash reserves.  On
the other hand, the province's "moderate" debt burden, which S&P
expects to hover just over 30% of operating revenues for the next
two years, and "low" contingent liabilities, particularly compared
with other rated Argentine local and regional governments (LRGs),
support Mendoza's credit quality.

S&P caps its long-term ratings on Mendoza at the same level as the
'CCC-' T&C on Argentina (foreign currency: SD/SD; local currency:
CCC+/Negative/C).  S&P do so to reflect the likelihood that the
sovereign could restrict the domestic entities' access to foreign
currency for their debt service obligations.  In S&P's view, the
province doesn't meet our criteria under which the foreign
currency rating on a LRG could be higher than the T&C assessment.

Due to the cross-default clauses included in some of the
province's debt obligations, S&P don't believe it has sufficient
liquidity to meet all of its foreign and local currency debt
obligations, if a cross-default clause were to be activated amid
stagnant macroeconomic conditions after Argentina's selective
default in 2014.  Therefore, S&P also caps the local currency
rating on the province at 'CCC-'.

Slow economic growth, high inflation, a dual exchange rate, and
uncertainty over medium-term prospects, particularly given the
national elections in October 2015, which further exacerbate
Argentina's "very volatile and underfunded" intergovernmental
institutional framework, limits Mendoza's creditworthiness.  S&P
expects Mendoza's economy to contract in line with that of the
nation by 0.5%, which should further weaken the province's
budgetary performance.  S&P expects an operating deficit of 1% of
operating revenues in 2015, compared with the 1.4% surplus in
2014.  Similarly, S&P expects the deficit after capital accounts
to widen to 4.5% in 2015 from 2.0% in 2014.  S&P believes that
this volatility partly stems from high inflation in Argentina,
which it expects to be between 25% and 30% in 2015.

High inflation has also pressured Mendoza's budgetary flexibility
due to ongoing negotiations for public-sector salary wage
increases, limiting the province's ability to cut expenditures.
Mendoza's already low capital expenditures, which S&P expects to
remain below 6% of total expenditures over the next couple of
years, will also hinder the province's ability to cut investments.
S&P expects Mendoza's own-source revenues to account for about 48%
of its operating revenues over the next several years, though S&P
don't expect it to raise tax rates in the near future.

Mendoza's current management has taken steps over the past four
years to help boost own source revenues to 49% of operating
revenues in 2014 from 44% in 2011, including stronger tax
collection.  Yet, the province's current administration has
struggled with its liquidity management amid political
disagreements among parties, preventing the passage of the
provincial budget for two consecutive years.  However, because the
"Cambia Mendoza" will have an absolute majority in both
legislative chambers starting in December 2015, S&P expects some
of this political divisiveness to abate.  The current
administration has a strong relationship with the federal
government, but whether or not the new administration can maintain
it will partly depend on the outcome of the October 2015 national
elections.

The federal government is Mendoza's largest creditor and holds
approximately 29% of its debt.  As of Dec. 31, 2014, the
province's debt, which S&P considers to be "moderate," reached
ARP9.3 billion, or 33% of the province's operating revenues. S&P
expects Mendoza's debt to be at 30%-32% of operating revenues for
the next two years as exchange rate movements and rising net
external financing offsets inflation's impact.  In addition, S&P
expects the province's interest expenses to remain relatively
stable, at about 2% of operating revenues.  Given that
approximately 51% of Mendoza's debt is dollar denominated,
exchange rate movements pose a currency risk.  The dollar-
denominated international bond, Bono Mendoza 2018, and local
dollar-linked bonds, make up about 25% of the total debt.
Multilateral organization loans make up about 19% of total debt.
Apart from its debt with the national government, Mendoza's local
currency debt is with commercial banks and local capital markets.

Liquidity

Mendoza has "weak" liquidity with no cash reserves and an
estimated debt service of about ARP2.7 billion in 2015 (including
ARP318 million in debt service to the central government under the
Federal Program for Debt Reduction).  Given that about 59% of the
province's 2015 debt service is in foreign currency, further
depreciations of the Argentine peso would further weaken Mendoza's
liquidity.  Yet, this exchange rate risk is mitigated by the
province's dollar-linked royalty income, which represented about
8% of operating revenues in 2014.

S&P believes that Mendoza's access to external liquidity is
limited.  Following the sovereign default in 2014, the province
hasn't tapped international capital markets, though it issued debt
in the domestic market with terms of less than five years.
Mendoza, like other public entities in Argentina, doesn't have a
strictly committed credit line, but it has established relations
with major banks, including Banco Naci¢n, which is the province's
financing agent and provides Mendoza with an overdraft facility.

OUTLOOK

The negative outlook reflects the potential implications that
further restrictions to foreign currency access could have on the
province's ability to continue to repay its debt service in a
timely manner amid limited external financing due to the
sovereign's selective default in 2014.  S&P could lower the
ratings on the province if it perceives the central government
might further tighten its exchange control regime, which could
impair Mendoza's ability to service its foreign currency debt.  On
the other hand, S&P could raise its ratings if the risks of access
to foreign currency diminish.

In accordance with S&P's relevant policies and procedures, the
Rating Committee was composed of analysts that are qualified to
vote in the committee, with sufficient experience to convey the
appropriate level of knowledge and understanding of the
methodology applicable.  At the onset of the committee, the chair
confirmed that the information provided to the Rating Committee by
the primary analyst had been distributed in a timely manner and
was sufficient for Committee members to make an informed decision.

After the primary analyst gave opening remarks and explained the
recommendation, the Committee discussed key rating factors and
critical issues in accordance with the relevant criteria.
Qualitative and quantitative risk factors were considered and
discussed, looking at track-record and forecasts.

The chair ensured every voting member was given the opportunity to
articulate his/her opinion.  The chair or designee reviewed the
draft report to ensure consistency with the Committee decision.
The views and the decision of the rating committee are summarized
in the above rationale and outlook.  The weighting of all rating
factors is described in the methodology used in this rating
action.

HAITI: IDB Provides $15 Million Grant for Artisan Fishing Project
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Inter-American Development Bank has approved a $15 million
grant for a sustainable artisan-fishing development project in
southern Haiti.

Fishing is a key socioeconomic sector in Haiti, generating some
77,000 full-time jobs (52,000 direct and 25,000 indirect
positions).  Artisan fishing still remains the predominant type of
marine fishing in the country and takes place in 420 localities in
9 of the 10 departments.

The project seeks to improve artisan fishermen's productivity and
income in the Grand'Anse, Sud and Sud-Est departments by providing
improved public services for the fishing sector.  These are the
most productive departments in terms of fishing and house most of
the fishing localities, which has made them a key priority for the
government.  Additionally, institution-strengthening and capacity-
generation activities will benefit all fishing communities in the
country.

The new grant complements other financing sources for the
projects, including a $2.7 million grant from the Spanish
Cooperation Agency for International Development (AECID) and $1.5
million in local funding.

The IDB is Haiti's largest multilateral donor. In the past four
years it has provided $1.263 billion in grants and disbursed more
than $686 million to support the country's economic recovery and
its long-term development investment in areas such as agriculture,
water and sanitation, transportation, energy, education and
private sector development.

PETROLEOS MEXICANOS: Pulls Out of 1st Phase of Round 1 Oil Auction
------------------------------------------------------------------
EFE News reports that Mexican state-owned oil company Petroleos
Mexicanos will not participate in the initial phase of the so-
called Round One of oil tenders, which will mark a historic first
step in the opening of the country's energy industry.

"You have to keep in mind two factors. Pemex has seen its revenues
fall by more than 50 percent due to the decline in oil prices,"
Energy Secretary Pedro Joaquin Coldwell told foreign
correspondents in announcing the company's decision, according to
EFE News.

The report notes that Pemex also obtained 83 percent of Mexico's
proven and probable reserves and 21 percent of its potential
resources in a so-called "Zero Round" of non-competitive bidding
last year, he recalled, adding that the company therefore "deemed
it better to concentrate its resources" on future bidding
processes, the report relates.

Eighteen individual private companies, including U.S. oil
supermajors ExxonMobil and Chevron, and seven private consortia
are competing in the phase-one auction of 14 shallow water
exploration blocks off the Gulf Coast states of Campeche, Tabasco
and Veracruz, the report discloses.

But four other companies that had been pre-qualified to bid for
the production-sharing contracts, including Colombian state-
controlled oil company Ecopetrol, have pulled out of the first
auction, it was announced, the report says.

The bids will be unsealed on July 15 and the winners will be
announced that same day, the report notes.

The report relays that Mr. Coldwell tried to lower expectations
ahead of the awarding of the first contracts, saying that because
of the current oil-price scenario it would be acceptable if
between 30 percent and 50 percent of the contracts on offer are
awarded.

Mexico is starting small with its offer of shallow-water fields
and onshore blocks this year and saving the big prizes -- deep-
water fields in the Gulf of Mexico -- for later tenders, the
report notes.

The initial 14 blocks will be awarded in the first of five phases
of Round One, which comprises a total of 169 onshore and offshore
blocks, the report relays.

The report discloses that the awarding of the initial batch of 14
25-year production-sharing contracts follows a December 2013 oil
sector overhaul, a package of constitutional changes that ended
Pemex's 75-year-old monopoly and opened Mexico's energy sector to
private investment.

Mexico's government is looking to the energy overhaul to attract
tens of billions of dollars in investment and reverse a roughly 30
percent decline in Mexico's oil output, which peaked at 3.38
million barrels per day in 2004 and currently stands at roughly
2.3 million bpd, the report adds.


OAXACA: Moody's Changes Outlook to Neg. & Affirms Ba2 Rating
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's de Mexico changed the outlook on the State of Oaxaca's
issuer ratings to negative from stable.  At the same time, Moody's
affirmed the state's A2.mx (Mexico National Scale) and Ba2 (Global
Scale, local currency) ratings.

RATINGS RATIONALE
Moody's revision of the outlook of the State of Oaxaca's issuer
ratings to negative from stable reflects the risk to the state's
credit quality of the expectation that recurrent cash financing
deficits recorded during the last three years, financed primarily
with short term debt, will continue in the medium-term and will be
accompanied by a further deterioration in Oaxaca's liquidity
position.

During the last three years, Oaxaca registered cash financing
deficits equivalent to -5.9% of total revenues.  These financial
results were mainly driven by pressures on the current expenditure
side mainly related to education, primarily for the payroll of
teachers, and the state transfer for natural disasters.  Current
expenditures have grown on a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of
11% during the 2010-2014 period, compared to the 9.8% CAGR for
total revenues.  Moody's expects that if the state fails to
successfully implement expenditure control measures, it will post
cash financing deficits in 2015 of approximately -6.0% of total
revenues.

The state has financed these cash financing deficits through debt,
primarily with the acquisition of short term debt, adding risk to
Oaxaca's debt profile.  Net direct and indirect debt levels were
equivalent to 18.7% of total revenues at the end of 2014, compared
to 12.4% in 2012.  Currently, the state has the authorization to
contract an additional MXN 3.4 billion of debt in 2015, which
would allow the state develop some infrastructure projects.
Moody's expects that if Oaxaca contracts the total authorized
debt, its net direct and indirect debt will increase to 22% of
total revenues at the end of 2015, still a moderate level.

Combined with the cash financing deficits, Oaxaca's liquidity
position deteriorated in 2014.  Measured as net working capital
(current assets less current liabilities), liquidity was
equivalent to -2.3% of total expenditures compared to 6.6% in
2013.  The deterioration reflects the acquisition of short term
debt at the end of the year as well as an increase in accounts
payable.  Given the challenges the state faces in recording cash
financing deficits, Moody's anticipates that the downward trend in
liquidity seen since 2011 will continue.

The affirmation of the Ba2/A2.mx ratings reflects Oaxaca's
moderate net direct and indirect debt levels equivalent to 18.7%
of total revenues at the end of 2014 and low pension liabilities
compared to national peers.

WHAT COULD CHANGE THE RATING UP/DOWN
The outlook of the ratings could be stabilized if the state
successfully implements current expenditure control measures,
resulting in the strengthening of cash financing results and
liquidity position.  If the state of Oaxaca continues registering
cash financing deficits in the near term, increasing debt levels
higher than expected and/or deteriorating further its liquidity
position, the ratings could face downward pressure.

The period of time covered in the financial information used to
determine State of Oaxaca's rating is between 01/01/2010 and
31/12/2014 (source: State of Oaxaca).

CORPORACION AZUCARERA: Fitch Affirms 'BB' Issuer Default Rating
---------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed Corporacion Azucarera del Peru S.A.'s
(Coazucar) Local & Foreign Currency Issuer Default Rating (IDR)
and senior unsecured notes at 'BB'.

The Rating Outlook is Negative.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

Negative Outlook:

Coazucar's Negative Outlook reflects the pressure over liquidity
and free cash flow (FCF) due to the capex commitment of about
USD200 million for the completion of the Olmos greenfield project
mainly over 2015-2017 period. The company has paid USD8 million-
USD9 million for Olmo's water resources since November 2014 and
cash generation from this project is not expected before the
second half of 2016.

Strong Equity Holder:

Coazucar's shareholders have demonstrated their financial
commitment to the company's liquidity. In September 2014,
Coazucar's shareholders injected USD30 million of equity cash into
the company and USD26.2 million in related debts were converted
into equity. In addition, USD24 million in assets were provided by
the owners for the Olmos greenfield project which includes a USD9
million production plant. Fitch factors potential support from the
shareholders into its rating and believes cash will continue to be
injected if liquidity deteriorates. Coazucar is part of a
conglomerate of companies owned by the Rodriguez Family and split
evenly between the two brothers. The conglomerate has leading
business positions in the cement and dairy industries in Peru and
surrounding regions.

Increased Leverage and FX Exposure:

Coazucar's gross leverage (total debt/EBITDA adjusted by dividends
paid to minority shareholders fell to 5.1x at LTM March 2015 from
5.9x in 2014 and 5.5x in 2013. Fitch expects gross leverage to
remain at above 4.0x in the next two years as FCF would be
negative due to high capex for the Olmos greenfield project. After
the completion of the project, Fitch expects to see deleveraging
even at currently low sugar prices. Coazucar's total debt of
USD477 million as of March 2015 is mainly related to the USD325
million unsecured notes due on August 2022. Most of the debt is
dollar denominated without any hedge against local currency
depreciation, which Fitch considers a risk factor.

Volatility of Earnings:

The ratings incorporate risks associated with product
concentration in sugar, which represented 83% of Coazucar's
revenues in 2014. By nature, the sugar industry is volatile and
exposed to fluctuations in commodity prices and external factors
such as the event risk associated with the natural phenomenon El
Nino. During the LTM ended March 31, 2015, adjusted EBITDA was
around USD100 million with a margin of 20.3%, similar to 2013, due
to lower prices but higher volumes. Fitch expects Coazucar's
EBITDA margin to be around 21%, in line with the depressed sugar
prices, cost savings and improvement in efficiencies. Although the
company's price gap between its brown and white sugar premium
prices in Peru compared to international prices has shown a
recovery since fourth quarter 2014, it is considered as volatile.
However, the group EBITDA margin is likely to benefit slightly
with the white refined sugar production coming from the Coazucar's
new refinery located in Casa Grande in Peru.

Strong Business Position in Peru:
Coazucar is geographically concentrated in Peru (68% of total
revenues and 82% of EBITDA in 2014). It is the largest sugar
producer in Peru, controlling around 46% of market share in the
country. It has a low cost structure and still high operating
margins (though lower than Brazilian peers which are more
diversified into ethanol) that stem from its proximity to owned
sugarcane fields, a lower dependence on third-party producers, and
some of the world's highest sugar cane yields per hectare as a
result of its favorable geographic location that allows for a
continuous growing period. Coazucar's operations in Ecuador and
Argentina diversify its production base and expand its sugar
offering with white/organic sugar, but with lower sugar cane
yields and profitability and higher sovereign risk than Peru.

KEY ASSUMPTIONS

Fitch's key assumptions within the rating case for the issuer
include:

-- Olmos project starts production in second half of 2016 adding
    annual production of 120,000-130,000 tons of sugar;
-- Average sugar prices at USD14 cents/pound in 2015, USD16
    cents/pound in 2016 and USD17 cents/pounds from 2017 onwards;
-- Capex for Olmos project: USD200 million for 2015-2017;
-- Capex for maintenance: USD20 million per year;
-- Dividends for non-controlling shareholders at the subsidiary
    level: USD6.25 million per year; --EBITDA margin at around
    21%;
-- Potential equity injections to preserve liquidity while
    completing the Olmos project.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

A negative rating action could occur if the group's liquidity
position deteriorates due to increased capital investment or lower
margin without any tangible support from its shareholder. A
downgrade could occur if Fitch believes Coazucar's net leverage
will exceed 4.0x after 2017.

An Outlook revision to Stable could occur if Coazucar improves its
pricing power, reduces leverage and improves cash flow through the
investment cycle. Tangible support from the shareholder that
improves liquidity and lowers leverage also could lead to positive
rating actions.

LIQUIDITY

As of March 31, 2015, the company had USD88 million in cash which
covered adjusted short-term debt of USD54 million by 2.4x, which
compares favorably with 1.9x and 1.3x in 2014 and 2013,
respectively.. Coazucar's debt amortization schedule is
manageable, as most of its debt is due in 2022.

FULL LIST OF RATING ACTIONS

Fitch has affirmed the ratings for Corporacion Azucarera del Peru
S.A. as follows:

-- Local and Foreign IDR at 'BB';
-- Senior unsecured debt at 'BB'.

LAS AMERICAS: Plan Filing Date Extended
---------------------------------------
Judge Edward A. Godoy of the United States Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Puerto Rico, at the behest of Las Americas 74-75,
Inc., gave the Debtor an extension of time to file a disclosure
statement and plan as its main creditor, ALD Acquisition LLC, has
not filed a proof of claim and has not made an appearance in the
bankruptcy proceedings.

commence receiving interest payment if the Debtor fails to file a
confirmable plan within the statutory period of 90 days as
established in Section 362(d)(3) of the Bankruptcy Code.  In
response to ALD, the Debtor said ALD's intent to oppose was filed
belatedly and with the only purpose of obstructing the Debtor's

OFG BANCORP: S&P Cuts Issuer Credit Rating to B; Outlook Negative
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its ratings on two
regional banks -- Popular Inc. and FirstBank Puerto Rico -- and
lowered its ratings on two banks -- OFG Bancorp and Santander
Bancorp.  S&P has affirmed its 'B+/C' ratings on Popular Inc. and
its 'B+' rating on FirstBank Puerto Rico.  S&P has lowered its
rating on OFG Bancorp to 'B' from 'B+' and S&P's ratings on
Santander Bancorp to 'BBB-/A-3' from 'BBB/A-2'.  S&P also removed
the ratings on all four banks from CreditWatch, where it had
placed them with negative implications on Feb. 13, 2015.  The
rating outlooks on all four banks are negative.

RATIONALE

The rating actions were largely based on S&P's view that the
difficulties in the loan portfolios will worsen, and the local
economy could weaken further.

S&P believes that the shrinking economy of Puerto Rico and the
high probability that the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and some of
its government-related entities will default or conduct distressed
exchanges of their debt in the coming months poses direct and
indirect threats to the creditworthiness and the business models
of the four commercial banks on the island.

S&P recognizes that these banks have taken significant steps to
lower their holdings of government and government-related debt and
improve other aspects of their creditworthiness.  Still, they all
face some level of direct exposure to the government, and,
furthermore, S&P believes that fiscal woes of the commonwealth
could add further to the deterioration in the local economy.  That
could cause the banks' credit losses to rise and their capital to
decline.  In addition, given the difficulties in Puerto Rico, S&P
views the ability to add profitable loans as challenging because
most of these banks' portfolios are in run-off mode, which S&P
views negatively in terms of a sustainable business model.

As a percent of its capital, OFG has the highest exposure to the
commonwealth, municipalities, and government-related agencies in
Puerto Rico among the four banks.  S&P believes this factor, in
addition to its view that attractive lending opportunities are
becoming more scarce, has weakened the company's business
position.  As a result, S&P revised its business position
assessment to "weak" and lowered its rating on OFG by one notch.

Likewise, the business position of Santander has also weakened, in
S&P's view, as the bank has shrunk its balance sheet meaningfully
in recent years.  That has caused the company's problem assets to
increase as a as a portion of total assets.  S&P continues to view
its creditworthiness as investment grade, largely because of its
robust capital and S&P's view that it would receive some support
from its parent, Banco Santander S.A.  Still, S&P views
Santander's business risk profile as "weak," and believe it
reflects the lack of business opportunity and possible credit
issues on the horizon, based on further weakening of the Puerto
Rican economy.

Popular and FirstBank also face challenges, but, in S&P's view,
the speculative-grade ratings already reflect the risks posed by
the deterioration of Puerto Rico from a fiscal and credit
standpoint.  They also have made improvements in recent years to
their business and financial profiles.

OUTLOOK

S&P maintains negative outlooks on all four of these ratings
because it believes the remaining Puerto Rico government-related
loan exposures are still substantial, and S&P sees a more
difficult business and asset-quality environment.  S&P expects
that loan performance will remain poor over at least the next few
years, given the weak economy in Puerto Rico and uncertainty
regarding loan exposures to the Puerto Rican government and
related entities.  S&P will also be monitoring these banks'
funding profiles closely, as these banks--except for Santander--
rely on a significant amount of wholesale funding.

Positively, S&P recognizes that all of these banks benefit from
certain structural benefits, such as access to the Federal Home
Loan Bank, the U.S. Federal Reserve's discount window, and deposit
insurance from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., which could
support their funding profiles and minimize potential outflows of
customer deposits despite the commonwealth's persistent economic
weakness.

S&P plans to publish individual analyses on each of these banks
with more details on the ratings.

PUERTO RICO: 1st Cir. Invalidates Debt Enforcement & Recovery Act
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The following is a statement from Franklin Advisers, Inc. and
OppenheimerFunds:

"The United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit on July
7 unanimously ruled for bondholders when it invalidated Puerto
Rico's Debt Enforcement and Recovery Act as pre-empted by the
Federal Bankruptcy Code.  Puerto Rico had adopted the Act to
compel a restructuring of over $18 billion in bonds issued by the
Commonwealth's electric, sewer and highway corporations.  The
decision protects bondholders across the United States from Puerto
Rico's now-void statute and from any other state attempting to
enact a similar statute.  The First Circuit found that Congress
had reserved to itself the power to authorize a bankruptcy
proceeding for Puerto Rico's municipalities.  The Court held that
preemption 'follows straightforwardly from the plain text and is
confirmed by both statutory history and legislative history,' and
rejected the Commonwealth's 'unsound and unsuccessful alternative
readings.'

"We continue to work with the Commonwealth and Puerto Rico's
electric company toward a mutually agreed upon revitalization
plan, and expect to work with the Commonwealth generally to
develop reforms that holders of Puerto Rico's bonds can support."

SURINAME: Signs Deal With CDB to Reduce Trade Licenses Wait
-----------------------------------------------------------
Caribbean360.com reports that Suriname has signed two historic
agreements with the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) for projects
to improve Suriname's implementation of both the European
Partnership Agreement (EPA) and the CARICOM Single Market and
Economy (CSME).

The two projects will assist in transforming Suriname into a more
competitive economy, increasing its export earnings, and making
the country more attractive for investment, according to
Caribbean360.com.

The projects, to be implemented by the Ministry of Trade and
Industry and the Suriname Business Forum, are being funded through
two grant facilities -- the CSME Standby Facility and the EPA
(Economic Partnership Agreement between the European Union and
CARIFORUM) Standby Facility, the report notes.

"With the support of the Caribbean Development Bank, CARIFORUM and
the EU, we will be able to accomplish some important goals with
these projects," said Minister of Trade and Industry, Don Soejit
Tosendjojo, the report relates.

"These grants through the Trade Facilities will allow us to bridge
the gap between world trends in Trade Facilitation and our current
system, as well as prepare ourselves to deal with the increasing
challenges of operating in competitive world markets," Mr.
Tosendjojo said, the report notes.

The report discloses that the Ministry will implement a grant from
the EPA Standby Facility which will help determine the
requirements for establishing an Electronic Single Window (ESW).
The ESW will allow importers and exporters to submit all of the
documentation needed to obtain licenses to trade online.
Currently, applications for trade licenses must be submitted in
hard copy and manually processed, the report relays.

Depending on the volume of applications received and the extent to
which forms have been filled correctly and accompanied by the
required certificates, it can take up to a month to obtain a
license, the report discloses.  The establishment of an ESW will
allow all applications and processing to be done electronically
thereby significantly reducing processing time to as little as 48
hours, the report relays.

"These two projects, when fully implemented, will in a tangible
way demonstrate how the region's trading regime can be used to
create sustainable economic opportunities for our people", said
Edward Greene, Division Chief, Technical Cooperation Division of
the Caribbean Development Bank, the report adds.

* VENEZUELA: To Stop Buying Rice from Guyana Amid Dispute
---------------------------------------------------------
Trinidad Express reports that Venezuela has decided to stop buying
much of Guyana's rice crop amid an escalating border dispute
between the South American neighbors, the Guyanese finance
minister said.

Finance Minister Winston Jordan said Venezuelan officials informed
him during a visit to Caracas that they will be acquiring rice
from other suppliers, including Suriname, by the end of the year,
according to Trinidad Express.

The report notes that Venezuela has in the past four years
purchased about 40 percent of Guyana's rice production, or about
200,000 tons, paying for it with oil that amounts to about half of
Guyana's daily supply needs.  "It will be a significant blow to
us," said Peter DeGroot, president of the Rice Millers
Association, the report relates.

The exchange of rice for oil was done under Petrocaribe, a
Venezuelan initiative that provides fuel at generous financial
terms to Caribbean and Central American countries. Guyana remains
a member of Petrocaribe and will continue to buy oil from
Venezuela, Mr. Jordan said, the report discloses.

The report notes that Mr. Jordan said Venezuela did not disclose
the reason for its decision, but the long-running border dispute
has been heating up following the recent disclosure of a major oil
discovery off Guyana in waters that Venezuela claims.  President
Nicolas Maduro said that he was recalling Venezuela's ambassador
in Guyana for consultations and would review relations between the
countries, the report relays.

Guyana Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo said the timing of the rice
announcement made it at least appear that it is connected to the
border flap, the report notes.  "It will have to be considered
whether Venezuela's position of the non-renewal of the Petrocaribe
barter agreement is indeed an act of economic sanction against
Guyana," he said in a statement obtained by the news agency.

The finance minister said Venezuela also did not rule out future
purchases of rice.  He also said that Venezuela had previously
informed Guyanese officials of the plans to discontinue the bulk
purchase of the rice crop but that the government of President
Donald Ramotar, which was ousted in May elections, did not
disclose the information, the report adds.

                            ***********


Monday's edition of the TCR-LA delivers a list of indicative
prices for bond issues that reportedly trade well below par.
Prices are obtained by TCR-LA editors from a variety of outside
sources during the prior week we think are reliable.   Those
sources may not, however, be complete or accurate.  The Monday
Bond Pricing table is compiled on the Friday prior to publication.
Prices reported are not intended to reflect actual trades.  Prices
for actual trades are probably different.  Our objective is to
share information, not make markets in publicly traded securities.
Nothing in the TCR-LA constitutes an offer or solicitation to buy
or sell any security of any kind.  It is likely that some entity
affiliated with a TCR-LA editor holds some position in the
issuers' public debt and equity securities about which we report.

Tuesday's edition of the TCR-LA features a list of companies with
insolvent balance sheets obtained by our editors based on the
latest balance sheets publicly available a day prior to
publication.  At first glance, this list may look like the
definitive compilation of stocks that are ideal to sell short.
Don't be fooled.  Assets, for example, reported at historical cost
net of depreciation may understate the true value of a firm's
assets.  A company may establish reserves on its balance sheet for
liabilities that may never materialize.  The prices at which
equity securities trade in public market are determined by more
than a balance sheet solvency test.

Submissions about insolvency-related conferences are encouraged.
